Pt. G.B. Pant High Altitude Zoo-Nainital is among the very well maintained Zoos in India. It is situated in the hills of Sher ka Danda at about 1 km. from Tallital Bus Station at an elevation of 2100 meters above sea level and connected by motorable road.
Nainital Zoo is well worth a visit provided one is in good health and is able to climb steep slopes. It is located just about 40 minutes walk from the Mall Road, up a steep road with a ruling gradient of 45 deg and more. Those lazy to walk can avail of the Zoo Shuttle which ferries people from the Mall to the Zoo Parking area and back for Rs.30.
Over all it is a nice zoo, well maintained and clean, as feeding wild animals is not permitted – and violators will be fined heavily. In any case, no visitor should feed wild animals and just enjoy seeing them in their enclosures, take photographs for memories, and enjoy the beautiful views of the hills around
